Jared Leto on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Aug. 1, 2016. 

Sometimes a role just really takes a hold of you and is hard to shake. Case in point: Jared Leto and The Joker. While the tales of Leto's unhinged, bizarre behavior on the set of Suicide Squad have already become legion, the Oscar-winning actor is clearly having a hard time stepping out of the iconic bad boy persona, as evidenced by his trickster appearance on The Tonight Show on Monday night.

"The Joker is a big giver of gifts," Leto explained to host Jimmy Fallon while seated on the couch and holding a small black box with a big red ribbon on it. "Have you guys heard about this? And he was thinking of you and wanted to pass off this gift especially for you." 

Fallon was suspicious, noting that he'd read and heard about things The Joker has done (such as gifting rats), so he approached the box with great caution. Spoiler alert: Jimmy did not like his present.
